This means it’s time to look for the best potty seat for your kid so that you can start the potty training process. This exercise will not only provide a sense of achievement for your little one, but it will also benefit you by providing relief from having to frequently change wet diapers.

PRIMO Folding Potty with Handles

PRIMO Folding Potty with Handles White granite

I've included this seat mainly for those of you who need to travel frequently where space is a premium.  I want to be clear - this is not a great seat for day-to-day use.  Because it folds up it isn't as sturdy as a one-piece seat.  That said, it does do a decent job when you are out in public - say at a library, museum, etc.  

By using this folding potty, you can ensure the safety of your kid even while using the public toilet as this seat does not allow any direct contact between the toilet seat and your kid’s bottom.

The built-in handles provide the user with an option of secure and comfortable sitting. The rubber pads under the seat fix it securely to the toilet seat and extended overhangs provide the required stability. The four hinges are designed to avoid accidental pinching of the skin. Due to its foldable design, this potty seat is very easy to store when not in use. You can even carry it in your travel bag.


  • Very compact foldable design for ease of carrying. Folds up to the size of an iPad mini.
  • Best of a small group of portable toilet seats.
  • Provides security from unwanted infections while using public toilet
  • Specially designed hinges to prevent pinching
  • Easy to clean


  • Does not fit well with the elongated toilet seats.
  • It folds so it's not super sturdy.  I'd be concerned with a larger toddler.

As there are not many foldable potty seat models on the market, for now this is the best solution in my opinion.  Anyone looking for a portable and easy to carry potty seat for their little one should be happy with this product.  Just understand it's not the same as a one-piece seat.


Considering all the features of the potty seats reviewed in this article, the Babybjorn Toilet Trainer, White/Black is the best choice due to its ergonomic design and quality of materials used in its manufacturing. You can use this potty seat for a longer period of time as compared to other cheaper products.

The second option in this category goes to OXO Tot Sit Right Potty Seat with Stand Right Base due to its perfect design and size for a comfortable experience.

If you are planning to travel a lot with your little one, then you should opt for the PRIMO Folding Potty with Handles, White granite as it is compactly designed and you can even carry it in a small diaper bag.
